states according to u.s. authorities. this security camera from the airport in bulgaria shows a young man with long hair, it could be a wig, pacing nervously back and forth inside the airport. he is dressed like a tourist. the explosives were reportedly if his backpack. u.s. authorities are cooperating with the bulgarians and the israelis to try and figure out who was behind the attack that left five israeli tourists dead. israel's prime minister blamed iran, its defense minister blamed hezbollah which just yesterday released and posted on their web site a graphic description of how iran's revolutionary guard would go about closing the strait of hormuz by targeting u.s. aircraft carriers in the persian gulf. it was provided to us by the middle east media research insert. the bulgarians and israelis are in touch, we're told, with president obama's top national security adviser, john brennan, about the attack in bulgaria. megyn? megyn: jennifer, thank you. >>> well, coming up, what if israel does retaliate? in our next hour, we're going to sit down with ambassador dan gillerman who will wal

to tell us what their plans are and they refuse to tell it. politics as usual. bill: you saw the poll there, about 72%. what do you make of that number? >> when you see 72% that is a bipartisan part of this country. this is a country understands small businesses create jobs. when the president wants to raise taxes he hurts small business. most of them run as an s corp. a bipartisan joint committee and went through and studied it. more than a million small businesses will have their taxes increased. small business creates more jobs than any large corporation. that's why we're hurting today. bill: you heard ben bernanke on the hill this week in a couple different hearings, one on the house side, one on the senate side. his message was do no harm. he cast concerned about that. what do you think of that comment? >> that comment was very telling, number one thing hurting american job growth is uncertainty and policies coming out of the white house. think for a moment when the democrats came in and democrats controlled all. that the stimulus would mean that unemployment would never go above
